    True. If anything it's a discovery on how certain people reason.

    In my definition of normal, gay people are not abnormal.

    The same could easily be said about the other side

    My point is that the other side also has a way of defending everything and will go into desperation at times.

    I have to agree that desperate attempts that indicate fanaticism do happen. But it is the arguemnt in intself that must be examined.

Therefore if homosexuality increased the odds of survival for relatives of the homosexuality enough, it could in fact be a survival trait for the gene.
    In that case, isn't the gene for homosexuality similar in function to the gene for sickle-cell anemia, which enhances malaria resistance? We are still discussing a genetic abnormality that leads to biological impairment.

    More closely it would be related to a mothers instinct to sacrifice herself to protect her young. It is a survival trait at a genetic level if not for the individual organism.
